I did this adventure sometime ago (see: 17 December 2006), and, as we’re preparing to move, thought I should collect up the various corks lying around and return them for recycling to the LCBO. The tally this time, not including bottles we’ve taken as gifts to places and none of the – now numerous – screw top bottles on the market was:
- 73 wine bottle corks; and,
- 17 champagne bottle corks.
Hmmmmm …. every picture tells a story and the moral here is: we need to increase our champagne consumption 9 fold to keep pace with the wine.
